Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Economy League do?
The Economy League is dedicated to making Greater Philadelphia a world class region. Through in-depth research, collaboration with regional stakeholders, and creative problem-solving, the Economy League is in a unique position to serve as a catalyst for action.

How is the Economy League funded?
Approximately half of the Economy League's revenue is generated through Board of Directors membership. The balance is derived from projects and initiatives with local governments, foundations, corporations, and private sector leadership organizations. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to which contributions are tax deductible.

Does the Economy League have a political affiliation?
The Economy League recognizes and appreciates that elected officials are the primary decision-makers in the public arena. We remain nonpartisan in our work and enjoy partnering with elected officials of all parties in developing and implementing substantive initiatives that support economic competitiveness and better government.

Are there other offices of the Economy League?
Yes, we are an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Economy League, Inc., a statewide federation of three regional offices — including ours in Greater Philadelphia — managed by a State Board of Directors. Each office has its own staff and region-specific initiatives.
